As is customary in Samsung those models that were once flagship are “renovated” and updated to return to the market with some improvements. It happened with the Samsung Galaxy S Plus, and now is the turn of Samsung Galaxy S2 Plus.

Samsung Galaxy SII Plus Vs Samsung Galaxy SII

Frankly I must say, it adds virtually nothing to the original Galaxy S2 rather than a change in the processor and more modern software incorporating Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz UX Nature from factory, on the other things remains unchanged. However, we will review what incorporates this device.

The first thing to check is its design: it is almost identical to the original, personally do not see big differences. Perhaps the silver edges add a different touch, but is almost equally. As for its display also repeats the formula: Super AMOLED Plus 4.3 inch with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels which delivers 217 ppi.

The Samsung Galaxy S2 Plus will have a new Exynos 4212 processor dual-core 1.2 GHz, same frequency as its predecessor, and will feature 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and micro SD slot up to 64 GB.

On the side of the camera we see specifications also remain with a rear of 8 MP and a frontal of 2 MP.

The Samsung Galaxy S2 Plus will come in two models, one without NFC connectivity (GT I-9105) and one with NFC (GT-i9105p), and among them there will be a slight difference in thickness being the model with NFC wider with 8.9 mm while the other will have only 8.5 mm.

Samsung Galaxy SII Plus with Jelly Bean

The Samsung Galaxy SII Plus will bring by default Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with TouchWiz UX Nature, which may irritate some users of the original S2 as have long been waiting for this update and the launch of a device with almost identical specifications may enrage more than one.

Samsung Galaxy SII Plus availability

Regarding availability and prices very little is known, only that will come in two colors, one white and one black. However it is expected that its price ranges between what today costs a Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S3 Mini, since it is very likely that the S2 Plus hit the market to renew this strip.

I must confess that I am somewhat disappointed with this “remake” of Samsung as there are several aspects that could have improved the original Galaxy S2, and seeing almost no differences I believe this device is nothing more and nothing less than the same device only with Jelly Bean, update that has been delayed since last November. I guess that Galaxy S2 users must be very disappointed.

What do you think? How about the Samsung Galaxy S2 Plus?
